'Bucket List Bandit' kicked



Michael Eugene Brewster of Pensacola, Fla., was arrested Sept. 13 near Roland in far eastern Oklahoma after officers conducting a routine traffic stop determined the vehicle he was driving allegedly was stolen.

Brewster is suspected of being the “Bucket List Bandit,” a moniker dubbed by someone with the creative instincts of a decomposing mackerel because the crook reportedly told bank employees during holdups that he had only a few months to live.

Brewster, 54, was turned over to the FBI and made an appearance at the federal courthouse in Muskogee.

So, while the possible Walter White of bank robbery may be behind bars (that’s a Breaking Bad reference, for you unenlightened TV viewers), it remains unclear why he was in Roland. But if the robbed banks are hoping to get their money back, Chicken-Fried News thinks they might want to start by checking the slot machines of Cherokee Casino Roland.
